I don’t smoke and know nothing about effects of using e cigs. However, I think that vaping is stupid looking.

I get full blown ones with the headache. I have been getting them more frequently but that is, I think, due to stress.
However, old folks going through menopause have found theirs increased in frequency. Might that apply to you?

I’ve had the same happen. I was sat on the bottom of the stairs fixing a puncture, 10 foot away from the door, the postie was so quick shoving the card through that most of the details on the slip were empty and by the time I’d opened the door to try and confront him he was back in the van and pulling away.
Apparently they do this when they are late as knocking and waiting takes time.
I’ve no idea how to sort the problem, post the video on twitter maybe with the royal mail # and maybe that of the CEO mentioned above if you can find her on twitter.

@elly Indeed they are not, but does that make them any less valuable as people? I see the principle behind communism as vauling the person and ensuring that all have a decent quality of life, regardless of whether they are not so clever, sick, injured etc.
The practicalities of this have been shown not to work so well, but the idea behind it really appeals.

@elly The idea is that all people should be equal!
I’m not saying I agree with how Marx suggested it should be implemented, but I do agree with the idea behind it.
I have spent large amounts of time living in Russia, I do understand how bad it was for the countries that followed it, but this is not due to the idea of equality for all, but due to the inability of people to treat everyone equally and fairly

@katy Your method sounds spot on, though for slow cooking braising beef or shin, doesn’t matter too much what you do to the onions (i.e. no need to blend them) as it will all cook down,/ So tend to treat it like making a tomato based stew, including searing the meat for flavour.
Two things I am not so sure of
Yogurt in a tomato-based, slow-cooked curry? As a garnish for something spicy perhaps, and yes for marinating before the tandoor, but necessary for beef or lamb cooked this this way.
Not frying off ground spices. I thought it was proper to cook these off a bit in oil, but without burning.

The main point of Trump is that he’s a racist. That’s why his base vote for him.
@sarah I don’t agree. He got in because a lot of liberals didn’t vote for HRC. Many of us said how bad he would be and they are now seeing it. Its why the Dems just won Alabama of all places (not just Moore’s issues).
These statements 1. further energize the left but 2. are putting off republicans. I think its now 32 Republican congressman not running for reelection. The average is 24 across both parties.
These statements do energize some of his base but they lose him support, narrow his base, and further energize the left. The also make it harder for the dems to work with him for immigration reform. Anything long terms needs 60 votes to pass the senate.
